I went to BUHS and just graduated may 2013. This school is amazing. however all schools have their flaws, as well as teachers. Athletics are strongly supported, while the fine arts are thrown aside and put on the farthest back burner possible. I was involved in theatre, marching band, concert band, and choir. It was great except we couldn't buy new music, over 100 instruments were broken and we couldn't buy or repair them. There are many wonderful teachers however there are a few who are rude to students. most of those have retired. Admin listens, but you must be active about it. bug admin until they listen to you don't stop until they do!!

I'm giving a 2 stars. We have moved out to this area from the Mesa area. In Mesa there were many many programs for my child who is on an IEP. There is almost nothing here for her. No clubs etc. She can only go until lunch because of the lack of funds for an aide. So far the staff has been very nice and are trying to best meet her needs. I think I'm still in shock over the difference in schools in the valley. Hopefully next yr will be better.

I currently have 4 high schoolers at Buckeye Union. I have one that is on an IEP, 2 in honors classes, and 1 mainstream. The school as a whole gives lots of opportunities for sports, music and band, as well as theater for students to express themselves. My only complaint is that although I see the administration at the sporting activities, I don't believe the arts are as supported as they should be.

about 20 years ago I found a high school red ring with a big "B" on it. It is a gold ring. I put it away and lost it at home. A few years ago i went through a divorce and found it in my junk. It has the year 1993 on it. Maybe you can locate the owner. I am sure he or she would like to get it back. Bennie Dimas 1 209 969 2808. I live in northen California now. The ring also has some initials on it for who ever claims it. Thank you and please get back to me.

This school has been a headache from the beginning. The teachers can talk to students anyway they want, and some of the administrative staff won't even listen to the parents. The negative attitude of some teachers and staff is unsatisfactory. How will student succeed with no positive reinforcement.

My 17 yr. old step son transferred out of North Canyon High with a 1.89 overall GPA in his sophmore year. The boy is now in his senior year and is holding a 2.98 GPA due to the school taking their time with him and not overlooking him or us as concerned parents. The faculty is very attentive to the needs of their kids.

Buckeye Union High School is an excellent school. They have a great Honors program and tough teachers. So if your child is a child wanting to succeed then I suggest having them attend Buckeye. The AG and FFA program are excellent as well as student involvment.

I currently attend Buckeye. I think it is an excellent school. Mostly the reason people do not think that it is a good school stems from the students themselves, not the teachers. The students in gerneral have a negative attitude towards authority and education itself. The teachers are incredible. They have a genuine interest in helping the students achieve their best. My teachers care about how i do in class, they want me to succeed.

This school is the best school ever. There are great teachers and even greater students. The Band Program is off the hook! Throw props to Ms. Green and the whole BUHS Drumline

Both of my children attend Buckeye High School. I have a child in the honors program and another child in regular classes. We have just moved to the state and previously attended private school. The change has some getting used to. Overall I am happy with the teachers we have they respond to my concerns in a timely manner. I am concerned with the amount of time kids practice in sporting events. The staff should all be on the same page when it comes to education.

I believe BUHS is a great school. The honors program is great and I really enjoy sending my child there.

I personally have been very disappointed in the school system at BUHS. I have had first hand experience in observing how the teachers and staff bring themselves down to the students level instead of being the adult. Also, communication is practically nil. For the exception of a couple of teachers I've dealt with, I rarely get call backs or e-mails. Speaking of communication, if your child is falling behind, you don't know until usually it's too late to do anything about it. In my opinion, Buckeye needs to start from scratch and hire new people and get a fresh start.

Mediocrity is the key word for most of this school. Sports is the main emphasis. A few teachers care about students receiving a real education, but most seem to just want to get by and collect their paycheck. Administration appears to be biased.

The honors program at Buckeye is adequate, but I feel that those in the upper 5% are not challenged enough. There are many extracurricular activities ranging from FFA to yearbook, and most offer applications for post high school experiences.

Kids today have alot peer pressure. At Buckeye kids are accepted for who they are not by their parents income or how they look or dress or what they drive. This is what helps make a student want to come to school and apply themselves better. When a kid feels good about themsevles they tend to believe in themselves which will make anyone succeed.
